One of the most well-known symbols of Zrinjevac Park is the Music Pavilion, situated in the very center of the park. It was gifted by the merchant Eduard Prister on February 6th, 1891. The Pavilion quickly became a recognizable location where numerous concerts are held as part of all the events in Zrinjevac Park, and it is one of the main motives in most photos of the park. With its registration in the Register of specially protected natural monuments in 1970, the highest requirements for interventions in the park were imposed, including potential restoration, leading to the renovation of the Music Pavilion in 1992.
